Madequecham House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 full baths, 1/2 bath, 2 outdoor showers, sleeps 8
This is one of the most magnificent pieces of property on the south shore of the island. If you want to get away from it all, this is it. Our home sits on 3 magnificent landscaped acres with stone walls, a long shell driveway, and a circular brick parking area. It abuts hundreds of acres of conservation land. The UNOBSTRUCTED view from the upstairs great room is of the Madaquecham Valley and Ocean.
New for the 2011 season, we have a large (60ft X 18 ft) heated custom pool suitable for laps or recreational swim, with an automatic safety cover, pool house, AND tennis court!
The house was completely redone in 2008.
Downstairs are 4 bedrooms, nicely furnished in summer cottage style. There are also 2 new full baths with brand new fixtures, slate floors, a clean white subway tiled shower in one, and a bathtub/shower in the other. There is also a nice laundry/mudroom with it's own separate entrance from the side of the house. Outside is a new and spacious outdoor show
Upstairs is a great room with soaring ceilings, a brand new Woodmode kitchen with granite counters, a peninsula and eating island. The decor upstairs is summer cottage style, with beautiful antique English Pine casement goods, cozy slip covered coaches, craftsman style woodwork, and top of the line oil-rubbed bronze lighting fixtures and ceiling fan.
The inside of the house is freshly painted in a soft French vanilla with white accents. Crisp white sheer curtains sway in the ocean breeze. Throughout the house are newly refinished pine floors. A French door leads to a south facing deck with stunning views, plus a large outdoor wicker dining set and gas grill. On the lower deck is an outdoor wicker grouping consisting of a love seat, chair and ottoman, and coffee table, with ivory cushions.
The ocean breezes keep you very comfortable, but should you want it, the entire house has central air-conditioning.
The pool cabana's kitchenette is equipped with a farm sink, under-counter refrigerator, beverage center, ice maker, microwave, and blender. There is a stunning mahogany counter with a marine finish and five bar stools, perfect for serving snacks and drinks poolside. Adjacent to the cabana is a shaded brick patio with an outdoor wicker round table,chairs, and gas grill. In the back of the cabana is a changing room, bathroom, and outdoor shower, all conveniently located by the pool.

About Owner/Manager Debbie
Our names are Debbie and Ed. When we were first dating, many years ago, we vacationed on Cape Cod. Who would have dreamed that one day we would have our own summer home on the beautiful island of Nantucket, 30 miles off shore from Cape Cod. We purchased our first home on Nantucket in 1999. 10 wonderful summers were spent in that house. More recently, we purchased and completely renovated this property. We work hard most of the year, and look forward to our time on Nantucket where we can spend quality time with each other and our three daughters.
Owner/Manager Debbie purchased this house in 2007
Why Owner/Manager Debbie chose Madequecham
We love Madequecham. It is the perfect get away. We think we have one of the nicest beaches on the island in our backyard. A few years ago, an article appeared in The Wall Street Journal naming the author's 10 favorite beaches in the world, and Madequecham made the list! We agree. The property our home sits on is a one of a kind. We feel very lucky.
What makes this house unique
Staying in this home is so relaxing. It is comfortable, warm, cozy, and very pretty, with all the modern amenities, but maintaining that unique Nantucket feeling. A true find! Please don't be concerned about the proximity of our area to the airport-we do not have a problem with air plane noise. We also do not have a problem with mosquitoes! We love to run on the magnificent paths through the conservation land surrounding our home. I especially love running through the path which bisects the Mellon Estate. Another favorite activity of ours is taking our bikes on the Milestone Rd bike path, circling around to the Polpis bike path, and stopping in Sconset for an ice cream or lunch, before heading back. You can afford to eat an icecream when you just biked 17 miles! (or you can take the short way to Sconset, which is only 3 miles) Our beach is amazing. It is almost never crowded. Even in the height of the summer, you can always find a spot to sit away from everyone else if that's what you prefer. We love sitting on the beach until sunset, followed by stargazing on one of the clearest skies we have ever seen. I still can't believe it when I come home at night and see the milky way, and if I catch it right, shooting stars!
Our family was so excited to have our own pool and tennis court starting in 2011. It is a dream come true for us. I love to swim laps, and my husband is an avid tennis player. My girls can't wait for their summer vacation next year. We hope you will chose to spend your summer vacation in our little piece of paradise next year as well.
